The start of another UCF college football season is just a couple of weeks away, and for die-hard Knights fans, there’s nothing quite like opening gameday. But for many, the annual UCF Football FanFest could be considered a close second. That’s because FanFest not only gives fans a chance to grab a field-side seat at the team’s final open practice, it also allows them to meet and snap photos with their favorite Knights players. It’s the ultimate fan experience: A day when all of the bowl-ban noise goes away, you’re face-to-face with your team and you head home with some autographed Knights gear. That’s certainly the best kind of pep rally we can think of. – Aimee Vitek
